I'm running WebMO on a GNU/Linux (Ubuntu 6.0.6) machine and interacting with it using:
Java(TM) Plug-in Blackdown-1.4.2-02 (from Sun)
My problem is that many buttons don't work. For example: in Build Molecule "Open Editor" has no effect. But "Import Molecule" does open a dialogue, though the molecule is not imported actually.
I have managed to open the editor from the link at the left side, but I have not been able to reproduce it.
The behaviour observed is the same when I use your Demo Server.
Is there a way to solve these problems?
Thanking you in advance,

Thanks to JR Schmidt, I found out what the problem was:

I have the same problem now. I am on mac OSX 10.5 and using Firefox 12. My java is up-to-date. How to solve this? Any suggestion?

Does the Java applet show up? Please describe the problem in detail.
Note that it appear that Firefox is blocking the Java plugin on some version of OS X (10.5 and below) for security reasons (since Apple is no longer providing security updates). See: http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Mozilla-blocklists-Java-on-older-Mac-OS-X-systems-1542769.html
It appears this block can be overridden.
But more details on what you are observing would be helpful. I can try this out on my 10.5 machine tonight.

Firefox 12 is currently a developer release, not for public consumption.
Everything works fine with Firefox 11 / OS X 10.5. I would suggest that until an official release.

I cannot see the molecule in the "Build Molecule" window. This from www.webmo.net demo server.
Operating system: Windows 10.
Have other people found and solved this problem?
I have no problem seeing and working with the Molecule Builder when using Firefox 47 under the Fedora 24 OS. However, the students in my class will use mainly Windows.

Make sure the Java plugin is installed. This will work with Firefox. Note that Edge and Chrome no longer support ANY plugins (including Java).
Also note that WebMO 17 will be released in the near future (in time for the fall semester) and is completely JAVA-FREE -- it will run on all modern browsers with absolutely no plugins/java required.

What will be the academic price for v 17, Pro?

So the new WebMO 17 is out, and I've got it more or less working (on a couple computers), but for some reason Firefox continues to have issues displaying the now-HTML5 software?
One of the places I've installed WebMO 17 is on a Mac, where [in Firefox] the visualization of the molecules sometimes comes in grainy/choppy, but otherwise visible. The Import Job, however, produces no dialogue.
Versus on my PC, where Firefox doesn't even display the molecule.
[it still opens the visualization interface with all tabs and pointer tools, there's just no visible molecule to use them on]
Chrome works just fine.
Is anyone else having these problems?
Would anyone happen to know how to solve them?

I have the most up to date version of java but WebMo will still not display the molecule I am working with. This is for both Firefox and chrome for me

You need to upgrade webmo. Java plugins are not supported by modern browsers.
